Sanjay Manjrekar trolled on Twitter: Fans of the Indian all-rounder were quick to pounce upon the former cricketer on Twitter.

During the 44th match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between Sri Lanka and India at Headingley, India all-rounder justified his selection over Mohammed Shami by dismissing Sri Lanka batsman Kusal Mendis in his first over.

Jadeja, who was introduced into the attack as a second-change bowler in the 11th over, found Mendis wanting on the fourth ball. The batsman’s attempt of stepping out to play a shot down the ground saw him missing the ball altogether. The dismissal was a regular stumping chance for India wicket-keeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Mendis, who came in to bat at No. 4 in the eighth over, ended up scoring 3 (13) before departing. Playing his first match in the tournament, Jadeja ended Mendis’ dismal run in this World Cup. In seven ODIs in the tournament, Mendis scored 143 runs at an average of 20.42 and a strike rate of 67.13.

At the time of Mendis’ dismissal, Sri Lanka were reduced to 53/3 in the 11th over. Known for running through his overs without conceding many runs, Jadeja gave away only 21 runs in eight overs at the time of writing this article.
